I stand corrected. I received my Triumph shop manual today and looked over the service schedule for oil and filter changes and final gear oil changes. Both the owners manual and the shop repair manual, call for the first engine oil and filter to be replaced at 500 miles. Not 10,000 miles like I thought. After that they both call for a 10,000 mile oil and filter change schedule.
But, on the final drive gear oil change, both call for 20,000 miles for the first gear oil change and 20,000 miles after that. Not 10,000 miles like I thought. That is worse yet!!! I can't believe Triumph would call for a 20,000 mile fluid change interval right from the start! Crazy!
Why not just make it 500 miles like the engine oil and filter? I guess they want the final drive to wear out after the bike goes out of warranty quicker.
